Macpac, a leading independent manufacturer of thermoformed packaging products in the UK, has experienced significant growth in its export business over the past five years, tripling its sales to 17 countries globally. With plans for further worldwide expansion, the company is set to add Australia to its list of export destinations in 2023.

The company has attributed this growth to an increasing demand for its high-quality, innovative, and sustainable plastics packaging solutions from medical, horticultural, and food manufacturers overseas. Graham Kershaw, Macpac’s managing director, acknowledges that the company’s focus on increasing capacity, operating efficiencies, sustainable products, and customer experience has been instrumental in driving organic export growth.

According to Kershaw, “Some of the expansion is a direct result of existing UK customers relocating their facilities overseas but who are still keen to utilize our 50+ years’ experience, knowledgeable sales engineers, and the benefits offered by our in-house design team and tooling facility. However, we are keen to build on this momentum and continue to further expand our geographical reach globally.”

Macpac’s patented Plantpac packaging solutions for the horticultural industry have gained popularity across Europe. The functional and cost-effective packs enable mail order growers and nurseries to ensure the safe and secure delivery of seeds, saplings, and plants.

With full AA+ accreditation for packaging materials from BRCGS (British Retail Consortium Global Standards), Macpac supplies thermoformed packs for a range of food and beverage sectors, such as confectionery, bakery, and snacks. These packs are manufactured using food-grade raw materials, offering functionality, security, and brand impact.

Most of Macpac’s thermoformed packaging products are 100% recyclable and produced from rPET with at least 70% recycled content. Alongside bespoke designs, the company also offers a selection of stock packs for the food and horticultural industries.

Macpac’s recent investment in new thermoforming equipment and ongoing commitment to sustainability has positioned the company well to support the growing demand for its products in Europe and the rest of the world.
